for probably four people who were convicted in russia of spying for the u.s. four people considered high value by the u.s. that we want to get back. one unresolved question here is what happens to the minor children of these ten and i just don't know what the answer to that will be, whether they'll stay here or whether they'll go back with their parents. i don't believe that when their parents get to russia they will be under any obligation to serve any time in incarceration, it may be that the judge will simply sentence them to time served which will be what, 11 days and they will be free to leave russia. once they agree to plead guilty, it's not really they choice. >> people are very curious for a number of reasons about this, the intrigue and so on and so forth, but can you at least tell us who would be behind the rapid speed of this transfer? is it the white house? who's pushing for this to happen to quickly? >> well, i think you can say very high level in both the russia and the u.s. governments. while this is following all the rules in the justice department, in the federal courts it's m
